Health Services is a Mask-friendly environment in most areas. This means masks are no longer a requirement in the clinical area but will continue to be available on entry for any person who would like to wear one. If a client presents with a respiratory illness, they will be asked to wear a mask while accessing care. Masking requirements will be revisited on the direction of public health or for outbreak management.
